How to allocate 12Mb "unused RAM" to app. for KTP6 plug-in

I am using Photoshop 6 on a Mac PowerBook G4 with 512Mb built in memory. I have a 200Gb Lacie external HD with a separate 50Gb partition used as a Scratch Disc for Photoshop.

I have both OSX:10.2 and OS9.1 installed on my hard drive. I am currently only trying this in the OS9.1 mode (not classic thru OSX).

I want to use the KTP6 Scenebuilder filter (which is installed correctly in the plug-ins folder of PS6).

It keeps telling me I must have "at least 12Mb of 'Unused RAM' in the host application" (Photoshop).

Every time I try to increase the preffered RAM (Cmd i on the app. icon) when I view the "about this computer" window it show the new allocation of RAM but the grey bar is always very near the full quota.

I have tried taking the preffered up to 300000 and still I can't get 12Mb of "unused RAM".

What am I doing wrong?

Thnks in advance for any help.

Regards - Deane

Also there you'll find recommendations on which drive to choose; defragmented and more about plugins.

Off to work, good luck.
